Bee pollen as a substrate for the production of aflatoxins


Alimentaria 29(236): 67-68
Bee pollen as a substrate for the production of aflatoxins
Pollen was studied as a substrate for the growth of Aspergillus parasiticus NRRL-2999 and synthesis of aflatoxins. By pollens we refer to that carried by bees, more especifically the Apis mellifera. Three batches of pollen were inoculated with A. parasiticus: the first batch had been dried and sterilized, the second dried but not sterilized and the third not dried. They were all incubated for 30 days at 25 degree C. The maximum production of aflatoxins corresponded to the batch constituted by the nondried pollen (24,9% moisture). In view of the results obtained, the drying of the pollen is recommended immediately after collection to a maximum 8% of moisture, keeping it at a temperature of below 11 degree C.
